Yoshikane knives are highly sought after pieces crafted in Sanjo, Niigata. Founded in 1919, Yoshikane have been producing knives for over 100 years, and is headed by Mr. Yamamoto, who is a 4th generation blacksmith. He will not just ‘sell his knives to anyone’, he remarked to us, in order to sustain the Yoshikane name as being one of the top producer of knives in Japan in terms of quality, finish, and attention to detail. This can evidently be seen as Chefs Edge is the only Australian retailer of this line of incredible chef knives.
The hand-hammered kurouchi finish on these blades assists with food release, and helps protect the blade from rust, as the cladding and core are reactive carbon steel. The core is White #2, considered the purest of the Japanese steels, and is very easy to sharpen and comes razor sharp straight out of the box. These knives feature a subtle convex grind which results in excellent cutting performance, and are finished with a roasted chestnut handle.
These knives are incredibly sharp, and as such have a very thin edge. Cut on wood chopping boards only, and do not hit/cut/chop frozen vegetables, bones, or hard objects, as the blade can chip or break. Do not twist or torque the blade whilst cutting, as this may also chip the cutting edge.
No dishwasher use!
Use a cloth with hot water to wipe the blade, no scourers or abrasives as this may ruin the finish. Dry your knives as soon as possible after washing and do not leave them wet for extended periods of time. Store in a cool, dry place.
We recommend you use a whetstone to sharpen this blade. Sharpening stones are available on our website, and with a small amount of practice you’ll be sharpening your own knives in no time.
